2022 has been an incredible year for the PS5, and it’s showing no sign of slowing down, so here are the best PS5 games coming this March through June.
The first quarter of 2022 has produced some masterpieces for the PS5. We saw the release of highly anticipated sequels to some of PlayStation’s most iconic franchises, with Horizon Forbidden West and Gran Turismo 7.
Sifu showcased how a well-crafted story can elevate masterful combat mechanics.
And one of the best games of all time, Elden Ring, took players through a punishing story carefully crafted by the incredible minds of Hidetaka Miyazaki and George R. R. Martin.
Not to mention Destiny 2, with possibly its most remarkable expansion to date with The Witch Queen.
And it looks like these next couple of months will continue to give more of the same in terms of quality.
Here are the best games coming to the PS5 starting in March to June.
